Ottery St Mary bowlers saw more action last week, writes Michael Smith.

In the County Trophy a meeting with close neighbours Feniton it was they who took the honours, winning on two rinks with the other two drawn. This gave Feniton an emphatic 95-54 victory.

In the Over-60s League the men’s A team continued their winning streak thanks to a six point success over St. Thomas A, with skip John Pethick, Tony Luff and Terry House winning 27-9.

Unfortunately the men’s B and C team both suffered poor results, losing on both rinks, the B team away to Honiton and the C team at home to Tiverton West End.

On a relatively quiet week, the main attraction was the club’s internal ‘Triples Weekend’. With three matches on Saturday morning and four matches in the afternoon, it was a full day and thanks must be recorded to Dot Luff and her team of helpers who provided a superb lunch for those who needed sustenance .
